The Fluttershy-worshipping state of NewLeaf is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Fluttershy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, complete lack of prisons, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.217 billion Ponies enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Naturalis. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient pony economy, worth a remarkable 1,161 trillion Unis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 160,913 Unis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, mandatory state-funded classes teach Libertarianism, the nation's apology for those it has executed in the last year has come a little late for some, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is totally unknown. NewLeaf's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Equestrianism.

NewLeaf is ranked 109,536th in the world and 4,718th in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring 36.11 on the Rand Index.
